A Study of the Parables of Jesus

Storytelling, specifically the use of parables, was the primary way that Jesus taught people. Mark’s Gospel notes that “He did not say anything without using a parable" (Mark 4:34). The stories Jesus told were so simple that even a child could understand, yet, so deep, we will never mine all of the meaning and wisdom from them. To those with “ears to hear,” those who could picture the message of these stories, Jesus revealed the beauty of the Gospel and the truth about the Kingdom of God. Dr. Gordon Dabbs and Jacob Hawk walk us through the parables of Jesus in this series featured on Sunday nights at Prestoncrest.

Walking In Wisdom Proverbs Title2

Walking In Wisdom

Getting information is easy. Growing wise takes work.

Never before have people had so much information at their fingertips. We swim in a river of information – notifications of social media posts, sports scores, economic data, breaking news, and a barrage of political opinions overwhelm us. In the constant barrage of information, alerts, and updates, people increasingly struggle to make sense of everything, to separate the true from the false, and see what’s meaningful in a sea of trivia.

Getting information is easy. Growing wise takes work.

The Bible teaches in Proverbs 2:6 that the Lord gives wisdom. He is the source of both knowledge AND understanding. In the Walking in Wisdom message series, we will turn to the Scriptures to take a critical look at our information consumption. We will discover how to filter what we hear, see and read, so that we can lean into trustworthy sources (like the Bible) and question less trustworthy sources (like social media). As we learn to walk in wisdom, we experience less information overload, our priorities grow more focused, we make better decisions, and grow closer to God, the ultimate source of wisdom.

Celebrating the Birth of Christ

The Christmas story has been told and retold countless times. Often, there are parts and people in the story that get edited out. In this message, Gordon Dabbs, Ph.D., highlights the role of underdogs that God used as key parts in Jesus' ancestry and in the announcement of his birth. Discover how God includes underdogs and misfits who are often left out when the Christmas story is retold.
